  1. Bulletproof is one of the darkest video games around, with its combination of gritty storyline and moonlit night-time setting. [PSW]
  2. More style than substance. This package is little more than a collection of his tunes, a reprisal of the movie and some generic gaming fodder that we've all seen and played in other games such as "Max Payne," "Dead To Rights," "True Crime" - that do it much better.

    Decent AI that actually hurts the game is an odd thing, but with Bulletproof's wonky controls, it's true. The game is a case of "been there, done that", only not as well.

    Basic combat just isn't very fun. [Feb 2006, p.104]

    The actual gameplay mechanics blow. The's game's targeting and camera system is about as skittish as the Howells' from Gilligan's Island would be at the Vibe Awards.
  6. If there's a sequel, let's hope more attention is paid to the actual video game instead of the videos.

    Pretty poor in most departments. The only thing this game excels in is the music and even then you've probably heard it all before. Not 50Pretty poor in most departments.

    Black teen: "If the game play was better the game would of been the real deal, and whats better than feeling like your in a true story. thanksBlack teen: "If the game play was better the game would of been the real deal, and whats better than feeling like your in a true story. thanks for listing."

    I've gathered that 50-cent supposedly was shot repeatedly while selling crack, i was not aware that he also lived through; " Working with the unlikeliest of allies, the streets heat up as 50 Cent takes on the most dangerous crime families in the city, uncovering an international conspiracy with devastating implications."

    Real deal my shiny metal ass!
